My new favorite Republican

Because I'm a shameless slacker, I just read this week's Laura Kiritsy column in Bay Windows--and what did I learn? Samiyah Diaz, who's challenging incumbent Dianne Wilkerson for the Second Suffolk state senate seat, says she'll work to repeal the law that bars out-of-state gay couples from marrying in Massachusetts if she's elected.

Super. Now I have some questions:

1) Why is this woman running as a Republican?

2) Is there any reason to think she'll even make Wilkerson break a sweat this fall?

3) Has any sitting legislator said they'll try to repeal the aforementioned law? If so, who? And if not, why not, dammit?

Thanks in advance for any enlightenment.
